Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
10 mg of Adderall in a 50 lb dog is 0.2 mg/lb - quite a bit under the dangerous dose of 1-1.5 mg/lb at which seizure/coma can arise. Agitation is expected at up to 0.25 mg/lb and, thankfully, that's about it. Everybody's going to lose a bit of sleep tonight but he's not in danger.
Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
